The Sac City Panthers beat Sierra College 21-20 in overtime Saturday to claim victory in the Centennial Football Game, held at the end of a very productive day in celebration of the 100th anniversary of Sacramento City College.
After the teams finished regulation tied 14-14, Tyree Hanson scored on a 4-yard run, and Elijah Siemering kicked the extra point for a 21-14 lead. The extra point proved to be the game winner, as Sierra also scored a touchdown during their overtime possession, but failed on the extra point attempt.
Hanson finished with 213 yards rushing on 39 attempts during the driving rain storm.
Congratulations Panthers, who improved to 4-2 on the season and 1-0 in conference play.

The Sacramento City College Art Department is pleased to present, as part of the campus-wide Centennial Celebration, an exhibition featuring historical and archaeological objects from SCC during the past 100 years.
Dr. Bill Doonan, professor of archaeology at SCC, undertook the project to glean through massive piles of stuff that has been collected throughout the years and decide on 100 objects that reflect the rich history of this college. He published a book entitled “A History of Sacramento City College in 100 Objects” as part of the college’s centennial celebration. The book is available to purchase at the Kondos Gallery, the College Store and the SCC Foundation Office for $25.
This special exhibition will be in the Kondos between October 11 – 26, with the opening reception at noon on Oct. 11. The Kondos is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Wednesday evenings from 4 to 7 p.m., and by appointment. It will also be open during the Open House and Fair on October 15.
The cap of the 100th Anniversary celebration on Saturday, October 15, will be the football game between Sac City and Sierra colleges. Kickoff is set for 6 p.m.
Make sure you attend the Open House between 1 and 5 p.m. that day and get a FREE VOUCHER for the game itself.

The U.S. Department of Education awarded Sacramento City College $3.85 million in grant funds on Sept. 29 to further our commitment to assist Hispanic/Latino and low-income students in their studies of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) over the next five years.
SCC will use the money to develop the “STEM Equity and Success Initiative” (SESI) as a comprehensive, multifaceted program to increase the participation and success rates of Hispanic/Latino and low-income students in STEM-related fields and careers. These fields of study are historically underrepresented by Hispanic and low-income students, despite their ability to do well in them. The ultimate objective is to see more students complete associate-level degrees in these majors and transfer to four-year institutions in STEM fields.
Key to the SESI program will be a comprehensive student focus that begins with the first time we come into contact with him/her all the way through graduation or transfer. Among SESI’s many features are: targeted outreach within the Hispanic community, a variety of instruments used to assess each student’s current level of STEM expertise, a summer transition program, proactive counseling, individualized education plans for participants, hands-on STEM-related assignments in all courses (including general education), and peer mentors.
“We are proud that the government sees our STEM Equity and Success Initiative as worthy of investment, because it’s an investment in our students,” said Jim Collins, SCC’s Dean of Science and Allied Health and the college’s SESI project director. “We know that degrees and careers in science-related fields can provide financial and career stability for many people. Now we have a mechanism to reach even more of them.”
Sacramento City College is a federally designated Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) because more than 25-percent of its student body self-identify as Hispanic/Latino. In 2015, SCC received a $2.65 million HSI grant to develop a program known as “Students in a Global Economy” (SAGE). With this grant, more than $6.5 million has been provided to SCC in the last 18 months for programs targeting Hispanic/Latino and low-income students.
